Artsakh denies Azerbaijani side’s arson allegations
YEREVAN, June 12. /ARKA/. The press office of Artsakh (Karabakh) defense ministry says the reports periodically issued by Azerbaijan’s media that the Armenian army set territories near Bash, Karvend, Bayramlar and Kengerli settlements in Agdam region have nothing in common with the reality.
In its news release, the ministry calls this a primitive propagandistic trick aimed at deluding the local and international communities.
“More than that – crop-harvesting season have already completed in Azerbaijan and they burn their own areas under crops, and very often the flame goes to the neutral zone between Artsakh and Azerbaijani armed forces,” the defense ministry says. --0----
